Hi Dave, Since neither XSL-FO nor HTML have the capability to format MathML, this would have to be handled with an XSL extension function. The extension would have to pass the MathML markup off to an external MathML engine that reads the MathML, generates an image, and inserts a reference to

Hi Lily, I implemented bleed tabs that operate in a similar fashion using the side regions in an FO page-master. There are a lot of details to make it work, but it can be done. The advantage of using side regions is that the content is static and doesn't need an anchor in the body flow on
